Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best mattresses, bunk beds, and headboards, here we’ve rounded up the best-reviewed bed risers on Amazon, for getting those extra few inches of under-the-bed storage. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best 2-inch bed risers

Slipstick 2-Inch Lift Furniture Risers/Bed Risers 4-Pack
$10, Amazon

“I purchased these to elevate my entire bed by a few inches. I store extra purses in an under-bed box but the lid catches under my normal-height bed frame. I simply inserted one under each foot, and now it’s higher and my under-bed box is actually easy to maneuver in and out. We’ve only used them for a week so I cannot speak to durability, but they are holding up so far.”

Best 3-inch bed risers

DuraCasa Bed Risers 4-Pack (3in)
$18, Amazon

“I started using a robotic vacuum. The only problem with the robotic cleaner is being able to clean those dust bunnies underneath all of the sofas and chairs. I tried a set of these and they worked perfectly! They only raise the furniture three inches and it is not noticeable. I have since purchased extra sets of these for all of the sofas and chairs where I have the robotic vacuum cleaning.”

$13, Amazon

“These bed risers are great! Got them for college and they have held up my big, heavy, bulky bed — plus me and my roommate sitting on it — all semester with no problem! They raise the bed up just enough so I can fit more stuff underneath but not so high that I have to jump up onto my bed.”

Best 5-inch bed risers

Home-it Bed Risers 4-Pack (5.25in)
$20, Amazon

“My son had mentioned that several students at his college were making use of this type of product to increase storage space in the small dorm rooms. So, we ordered a set and gave them a try on a double bed at home. To our surprise they were a snap to ‘install.’ On the hardwood floor they were very sturdy and the bed did not move much at all. The increase in storage space under the bed was significant. These would be a great gift for a student living in a small room where space is at a premium. The product is well crafted of sturdy polymer-type plastic. Considering price, it’s a great value.”

$13, Amazon

“I’m a college student living in a university housing apartment, and I’m generally short on storage space. My original intent for getting bed raisers was because my bed is so low compared to the one I have at home, but I also was able to store a lot more things under it after I installed them. They’re sturdier than they look: Some of my roommates (200+ lb football players) have jumped on my bed pretty hard and they show no signs of cracking or breaking. Definitely a good buy for a good price.”

Best 7-inch bed risers

Honey-Can-Do Stackable Bed Risers 4-Pack
$16, Amazon

“I bought these for my 4-year-old’s twin bed. I love that they’re taller than normal bed risers, which is why I bought them. I can now slide good-sized plastic bins of seasonal or next-size-up clothing under her bed, as I can’t fit much in the shorter flat bins people traditionally use with regular-height bed risers.”

Best adjustable bed risers

Home-it Adjustable Bed Risers 4-Pack (3in, 5in, 8in)
$25, Amazon

“I bought these for my daughter’s dorm. She is very pleased with the product. The base provides stability without being too wide and eating up floor space. Her roommate decided to purchase risers after seeing these, but the risers she bought locally had a base so wide she lost a foot of total floor space. My daughter also likes that she can adjust the height.”

Utopia Bedding Premium Adjustable Furniture Risers 8-Piece Set (5in, 9in)
$27, Amazon

“These are awesome! I lifted a guest bed to increase storage and although that bed has wheels on the frame, these holders make it very stable. They seem very sturdy so far and were the height I wanted. I really like that you have the option to increase it with the insert or have an extra set to raise something else. No scratching on the floor or other issues.”

Best wooden bed risers

Richards Homewares Mahogany Wood Bed Lifters (Set of 4)
$20, Amazon

“We needed a little lift to our bed to be able to fit storage boxes underneath. These are not only the perfect height, but they look nice. They peek out from under our bed skirt, so you see finished wood that looks like bed legs rather than ugly plastic pyramids. It surprised me that they are so heavy, but again, that helps them stay in place and not move around, unlike the cheapo plastic versions that don’t seem sturdy at all. We even bought a set for our guest bedroom and doubled our storage!”

Best colorful bed risers

Slipstick 3 Blue Bed Risers (Set of 4)
$15, Amazon

“These little guys have been holding up a metal bed frame, a queen box-spring mattress, the heaviest queen mattress I have ever owned, myself, and my boyfriend for about a month now. The rubber no-slip grip is an excellent touch considering past frames have scooted around within the base of previous risers. This is certainly a very sturdy set and thus far hasn’t given any indication of strain.”

Best heavy-duty bed risers

iPrimio Bed and Furniture Square Risers 4-Pack (3.5in)
$18, Amazon

“We have tried many bed risers but the wheels of our bed always seem to bust through after a few weeks even though our combined weight is only 320 pounds. These risers are different, they are thicker, sturdier, and the rubber inserts where the furniture leg or wheel sits makes them feel much more stable.”
